BUILDING RESILIENCE: A #FINBIZ2030 WEBINAR SERIES
“COURAGE IN ADVERSITY”
At this time, professionals and students alike may feel the odds are stacked against them. The global economy has faced a reckoning, the job market doesn’t inspire confidence, and success feels increasingly unattainable in these circumstances.
In this edition of the Building Resilience Series, brought to you in association with SAICA, you will hear from leaders whose hardship emboldened their purpose, enhanced their focus and led them to brighter days. You will leave this session with the fuel necessary to drive your optimism and resilience for the future.
